Cons: "We had originally reserved a window seat and an aisle seat but when they changed our flight they put us by the window seat and the middle which we didn't like."

Cons: "Got a stiff neck cause the seat would not go back. Makes it difficult to see the entertainment with my progressive lenses"

Cons: "Best flight, security our always the downer in traveling."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and then they underestimated the time to de-ice."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Not much to like"
Cons: "Poor customer service, panicking customers for nothing and just general lack of consideration for paying customers. Definite turn off to Delta. Not planning to use this airline agaon"

Cons: "The crew was late so we were delayed two hours. I find that extremely infuriating when you are a passenger and have to show up two hours before your flight. I also would lose my job if I was two hours late for a client."

Cons: "My flight got delayed for twelve hours with no compensation for a hotel."

Pros: "customer siervice was great and welcoming was awesome"

Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"

Pros: "On time departure; good updates by flight deck; luggage arrived unscathed."
Cons: "Once beverage service was complete, flight attendants retreated to the back of the plane. On a 4-hour flight, it would have been nice to have someone come by and ask if we needed anything, such as water, coffee, or juice. Granola bar was good."

Cons: "It was freezing cold on that flight. Cold air from side panels above the windows was blasting in our faces."

Cons: "Got stuck for two hours sitting in the plane because the computer systems went down."

Pros: "Tv on flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant skipped me for drinks"

Pros: "Got a window seat, my luggage arrived with me"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."

Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"
Cons: "We initially were put on a plane with defective air conditioning.... it took 90 minutes to finally decide to put us on another plane. The older planes have hardly any room under the seat in the isle seats."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from leaving the gate due to a fuel manifest needing to be signed. My baggage was really mauled ( by TSA or by Delta baggage handlers, I don't know). One zipper on a compartment was totally torn off. Another zipper was missing its pull and was difficult to open."

Pros: "EZ play newer plane nice staff"
Cons: "Power plugs did not work in seating row and air vents did not work"

Pros: "Great staff, quick service."

Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."

Pros: "Perfect"

Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Staff is ticketing were unhelpful in straightening out Boarding process. I ask for help and the agent came over and read the computer screen to me as if that was all he was there for."

Cons: "The fact that seats could not be reserved ahead of time. Having them assigned at the gate is illogical and does not reward the passengers who reserve / check ahead of time. Additionally, it creates unnecessary rush at the gate."

Pros: "Efficient, comfortable, on time"

Pros: "Service."
Cons: "Boarding. Was late because 1- airplane arrive about 10 minutes late and 2-have to wait passengers coming from Orlando."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Pros: "Row to myself"

Pros: "great"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."

Pros: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"
Cons: "45 minutes is too tight a connection in JFK when you have to change terminals even if the flight were on time!"

Pros: "Aisle seat; leaving on time"
Cons: "Sat next to family with 3 small children; kids and parents did very well. Wished Delta could have arrange for family to have 3 seats together. Would have been family friendly."

"Had to cancel flight as it was delayed by 12 hours"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delays are a thing with allegiant. This time 4 hrs., previous to that 2 hrs, messy boarding, staff is unfriendly both in McAllen and Sanford. Total mess."

Pros: "No seat not comfortable."
Cons: "No legroom."

Cons: "Give complimentary water"

Pros: "The passengers were spaced out, so we could actually social distance."
Cons: "Not all passengers wore masks. During a contagious pandemic. What the actual hell? Also, the tray tables are too small to use for anything, and we didn’t even get a free drink. Water and soda are so cheap, it’s absurd. I’d never take Allegiant again if they weren’t basically the only airline operating out of my town’s small airport."

Cons: "Great price. Wonderful flight. Seats are so close knees touched the whole flight."

Pros: "Quick flight, arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The smell"

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Depart on time Not Loose my luggage Track all luggage every step of the way instead of crisis management only when a lost luggage claim is filed"

Cons: "They charge $50 for a carry on bag!!!"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"

Cons: "Unclear pricing for carry on bag, could have saved $30 by paying at the ticket counter (even though I was sent an eticket and boarding pass); got stuck paying $50 at the gate."

Pros: "Crew food. Seat small little leg room."
Cons: "Plane on time. More leg room."

Pros: "Great crew. Good on-time flight (early, actually). Smooth boarding."
Cons: "Standard no-frills gripes. Seat is tolerable but basic, no recline. No power, zero inflight entertainment, etc etc. They won't even give you a sip of water for free, which is just absurd in my opinion. They did give me a free cup of ice... so I guess ice + time = free water..."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Allegiant knows how to get people off and back on the plane ASAP. The last few flights I have taken we left early and arrived earlier than planned because of this. Crew was friendly. I like the fact the flights are direct and no layovers at airports."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Earlier delay notification"

Pros: "Boarding is always a pleasure out of Provo, with no security wait and a pleasant crew. The plane we took was a newer model, and is similar to many Fronteir and economy Delta planes. Unfortunately that means that even a short one-hour flight leaves pains."
Cons: "Our ride was very turbulent, whether that’s due to weather or pioloting I’m not sure. Either way it would have been wonderful to have a free cup of water. Sat for de-icing for about 20 minutes before takeoff."

Pros: "Our plane was struck by lightning and therefore not able to fly, so we were deboarded and left to wait until a rescue flight could come in from Boston. Over the course of 4 hours, the crew kept us updated with every little change and were all very helpful! Once we were able to board the rescue plane, the crew handed out complimentary candy and drinks to help ease the wait times. Highly recommended!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being stranded for 6 hours in the airport for no weather reason, with no compensation."

Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."

Pros: "The flight was delayed for almost 4 hrs, but the staff was excellent. From the check-in agent, the gate agent, the flight attendants and pilots - everybody was upbeat and helpful."
Cons: "Just the continual delays, but the mobile notices were so helpful in not coming to the airport for a delayed flight. As always, the fact that the seats don’t recline makes the trip more uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great airfare, great staff, etc. Cant help that the passengers are idiots ! Love this place."

Pros: "Front seat leg room"
Cons: "No WIFI."

Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "Could,nt Have went any better."

Pros: "Flight was on time, the cabin attendants were courteous, and the flight captain kept us informed."

Pros: "On time and very efficient"

Pros: "The price was unbeatable, especially if you don't pay for a checked bag, carry-on, or a soda on the flight. Very smooth flight as well."
Cons: "The plane interior looks like it was gutted, then fitted with hard, plastic seats. No headrests, no privacy for the flight attendants. Everything costs extra."

Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Both departing and return flights were delayed by just over 5 hours."

Pros: "On the way there and back the staff was friendly, the flight was smooth and and overall everything was just great. This was my first time flying with Allegiant and I will definitely do it again."

Pros: "Both ways were good flights. The return flight however was delayed. We did enjoy buying some tickets from a lady named Valerie in Des Moines who also later had to come on the plane and remove an intoxicated woman. She made everything so easy and simple and enjoyable. And we especially enjoyed the treatment that we received as my husband is a veteran. Thank you so much for that."

Pros: "The view through a milkey-filmed window."
Cons: "Airplane would have been nicer and lighter if the 4 attendants would have cleaned it."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Being on time and the crew"
Cons: "The chair is not reclining"

Pros: "This flight was a return to airline travel in the 1980s in a good way! The plane was clean. The seats are among the most generous seats today. The best and brightest surprise was that each flight attendant was genuinely polite and welcoming."

Cons: "Did not check in or take this flight. Trip up to NJ was so bad I could not fly back. Tried to contact company and was told they could not assist in anyway. So lost ticket cost. Live and Learn. Do not fly this line."

Pros: "Loved their crew and the way they contacted you over the internet to remind you to check in, etc."
Cons: "NOTHING BAD TO SAY-a 3 1/2 hour flight on a comfortable, well piloted plane beats a connection from LAX that ends up being 8 hours for travel that day all hollow!"

Pros: "First time flyer on this airline... I loved that it was a DIRECT flight halfway across the country."
Cons: "Where to start... i guess for starters EVERYTHING is an upcharge. I was suprissed the seatbelts were included! Less legroom than a Cesna 152 and surrounded by 159 of my closest friends. And i mean SURROUNDED. That cabin is SO tight! So tight in fact the seats are a blow mold plastic with roughly 1.5" of foam and fabric. Think go-cart bucket seat with some foam rubber and pleather. Then there's luggage... My carry on bag (that I've used for 15yrs) was too big for the jig at the counter so got to check it for an additional $10 (above the $30 i had to pay to bring it) and they charged me $40 for my original check bag. The hitch is that they only allow 40lbs ($1/lb) for that check bag when the rest of the industry says 50lbs is the norm. Oops, gotta pay for that too! And wait for it... sodas are $2 in flight!"

Pros: "No Frills Business Travel Good price No hassle Everything on-time and efficient. A choice if I want extras including baggage, seat assignments, etc. Airport convenience"

Pros: "Flight crew was very kind"
Cons: "The security crew made me go through security twice and made my girlfriend and 15 month old daughter stand while they searched her bag"

Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff were and how everything was done on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 hour delay. They offered meal vouchers. For 8 dollar like wtf? But of course they offered them after every place closed in the airport."

Cons: "Plane was an hour late."

Pros: "Cost Flight Crew Deplane option from Front and rear"
Cons: "Only 2 flights per week Delayed flights All the "additional" charges $40 to check a bag $30 to bring a bag on board $12 for priority $12+ to book a seat in advance The method for Boarding that put every on in zones 2 and 3 in line before letting people who paid for priority get on board $22 for water"

Pros: "Very friendly staff very attentive"
Cons: "Very small and uncomfortable seating will probably fly Delta for the same price"

Cons: "That you guys so tight that would not even offer free water....."

Pros: "I didn't fly out of newburgh because of the nine hour delay I had to reschedule my flight"

Pros: "Delayed. Boarded. Unboarded. Left sitting when announced 'low fuel'. Claims of weather. Pulled up radar, zero weather to be found!"

Pros: "Price ok"
Cons: "Poor rude service. Waited 45 min once boarded to leave Hard to find flight info once booked Won't use again"

Pros: "Checking was fast"
Cons: "I have to pay for my carry on ."

"My trip Chicago to Phoenix was good. I slept most of the way. They charge for everything now. Carry-on was ~$50. I brought my own snacks. Seats close together ( well, it is an airplane), but luckily I’ve been vaccinated. It was a round trip and on both, the flight was delayed an hour. The delays were from lightening storms. It was ok."

Pros: "The time was great"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable especially when you’ve had back surgery."

Cons: "You need bigger tray tables!"

Pros: "No crew interactions"
Cons: "Honestly, this was the cheapest, dirtiest and most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Charges for everything, evev carry on bags; no inflight service, not even a glass of water or peanuts offered, no inflight TV, movie, etc. Bathroom filthy, NO padding to the seats at all. Horrible!"

Cons: "No signage for frontier airlines at o'hare airport. Not found in the departure flight schedule for phoenix either. Even at the gate there was no sign for our flight, only shown while we are boarding was the next flight to Colorado. There was a lot of confusion."

Pros: "Do attendants spent the flight scolding passengers for needing to use the rest rooms. We had terrible turbulence so seatbelt sign was on most of the time. So when captain turned them off people understandably got up to use restroom. The fl attendants then told people to stay seated during service!!"
Cons: "Don’t charge for snacks and WATER!!! Fl attendants talked very loudly and everyone has to listen to their conversation. What happened to customer service and making the fl enjoyable to us. Disappointing! My seat squeaked like it was built w substandard metal and hardware."

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"

Pros: "That I made it there in one piece."
Cons: "Not worth saving a couple dollars. Front tier airlines does not allow you to pick your seats before hand nor does it allow you to select baggage and the app, it is recessed for whatever reason. The seats are extremely tiny the tree table is so small you can barely fit an English muffin on it. There is no entertainment whatsoever, there is no Internet on the plane, and if you want anything to eat or drink besides water you will be paying for it. I’m sorry to say but flying on frontier was more like a punishment for me. I always fly American and wanted to save a few dollars what a mistake! With American most the planes that I have flown in have free movie entertainment and everybody seat the seats are comfortable And recline. And the snacks are free along with the soda. Please think twice before flying frontier."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Nothing my flight was half hour late"
Cons: "Very expensive I paid $193 for one way ticket and charge me another $95 for carryon and another Luggage"

Pros: "great. Base price"
Cons: "Seats were like bus seats. Plastic"

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Staff was rude. Seats uncomfortable. Sat on the runway for 30 minutes because we we're a half hour early."

Cons: "Frontier seats are minimally padded and do not recline. It's difficult to sit in them for more than a couple of hours. Our 3.5 hour flight turned into a 7 hour flight after being unable to land because of storm conditions, circling for over an hour, and being rerouted to land at another airport for refueling before finally heading to our destination. It has been a week and our backs are still bothering us. We flew Frontier because it looked cheaper but after paying for luggage, seats, and food we would have been way better off to have flown on Southwest. We will never fly Frontier again."

Pros: "Arrived in time"
Cons: "Paying $40 for my checked bag, $11 for my seat, and freezing my butt off!"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "My backpack cost me $45 to carry on! I upgraded my seat for additional legroom then when on the flight found out that seat didn't recline. I will avoid flying Frontier in the future."

Cons: "No food offers no entertainment and very uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Flight was like any other airline."
Cons: "Need to pay for drinks even water. Luggage was delayed 1 hour for the everybody; and the flight before us."

Cons: "The bag charges were over the top. BUT that wasn't the worst. I landed in Phx a little before midnight and walked to retrieve my checked bags. It took almost 2 hours before the bags came out of the carousel. There were no Frontier employees to help. Sky Harbor employees recommended we call the Frontier line and several passengers did. It wasn't just our flight either, the Frontier flight that landed an hour before us was still waiting and didn't get their bags until 90 minutes post landing. This was the worst customer service I've ever experienced. The high bag fees only added insult to injury."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Charging passengers extra for carryon bags and certain seats is ridiculous. The majority of the plane was empty which means you could have just moved to a different seat (that would have cost $11 more) once everyone boarded the plane. There is really no purpose behind the additional charges and negatively impacts the experience."

Pros: "Flight itself was smooth"
Cons: "$40 baggage charge and then I had to schlep it to the scanner myself; Boarding pass said TSA pre approved but Frontier person sent me to regular line; check-in agent was unfriendly; seats were too close together; tray tables are a joke; worst was only a small glass of water was complimentary--snacks $2.95, wine $9.95. I won't be flying Frontier again unless I have to"

Pros: "Crew was nice overall"
Cons: "Boarded. Sat on plane over an hour due to water/waste needing removed from previous flight. Let people off after about an hour and 20 minutes. Immediately called for reboard. Sat more. Took off about 2 1/2 hours late. Got to Phoenix. Am still at baggage claim 45 minutes later with the rest of the plane waiting for baggage. Other planes have come and left baggage claim. Not us. Still waiting..."

Pros: "Likely the most uncomfortable plane I've ever been on. Seats feature zero padding, the inability to recline, and a tray table the size of a DVD case. I'm 5' 9" 148 pounds, young and very healthy. I left the plane with a twisted up neck like I've never had before. I landed safely so I MUST be thankful for that, but if I was booking I would want to know this information. Since I'm the wiser now I will not book with Frontier again. Also it was an extra $90 for my CARRY ON round trip. It notified me it would be extra when I booked online but didn't specify how much. What a surprise. I spent more on the fees for the bag than I spent on the bag itself (and most of the contents for that matter)."

Pros: "The price was good"
Cons: "Hard seats that did not recline. Everything was an upcharge. Make sure to calculate that into cost, Even water was a charge."

Pros: "Boarding seemed smoother than American. Seats are pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Extra charges for carry on is not great, but it does make you think about what you pack!"

Cons: "Initial price appears cheaper than other airlines but they get you with their hidden fees. $40 to check a bag under 50 pds??? Can't carry on anything other than your purse, not even a laptop bag without more $$. No free drinks, not even water on this flight. Seats don't even recline. In addition, they don't participate in the TSA Precheck program. Many young children as well as they are a "discount" carrier."

Pros: "The cost of luggage AND carry on came to the cost of another ticket. The lugguge was lost (well, never put on the plane), but was delivered late at night, the next night. The flight left an hour late. The flight was booked solid so the plane was full and crowded."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and departed at 4:30"

Pros: "The crew was very rude, and ignorant, the only thing I did like was that the pilot let us know what was going on"
Cons: "I was the last one on the plane, because I did not check my carry on bag before hand, I was charged 60 dollars. After the fact, I was waiting to get to my seat behind a mom, and her approximately 6 year old son. As I am waiting to find my seat an attendant says to mean, "sir can you please find your seat, we can not back away until you sit down." At this point I am thinking what in the neck do you think it is I am trying to do, but I keep my mouth shut. Then, of course, I have a window seat. So I ask the people in my row to kindly allow me to get into my seat. While an elderly woman is in the process of moving so I can get to my seat, the same attendant says to me in a very demeaning tone "sir please find a seat." Again, I keep my mouth shut, but I am about to lose it on this guy. I finally am moving into my seat, and the attendant announcing over the speaker says, "we can play musical chairs later." I am just disgusted with the way these situations were carried out by the frontier staff. First I pretty much get 60 dollars stolen from me, then I get yelled at and made fun of because I was being kind, and not bashing through people to get to my seat. Not a very pleasant situation, I will never fly frontier again, spirit staff is way nicer, and the prices are cheaper too."

Cons: "If I had known I need to pay for carry-on, I would have opted for "real" airline. The additional fees should have been stated clearly."

Cons: "The flight was delayed, and we were not given any information as to what the issue was (e.g. weather, previous delay, mechanical issues, etc.)."

Cons: "I had tocwate 30 mins once we landed because there wasn't a gate ready for us."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, for some unknown reason and they even printed the wrong hate number on my ticket, then switched us on two other gates later on by the time we boarded."

Cons: "Frontier did not have enough of a ground crew to get bags off the plane. Had to wait until 1:00 am an hour after landing"

Cons: "For some reason the crew didnt open the door for 5 minutes once we were parked. Onece we landed it took 1:10 minutes for the bags to start being delivered. There was no one at the airport that could tell us why this was happening."

Cons: "No room, very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "The four hour delay sucked so bad"

Cons: "My bag was 6 lbs the weight limit, so I had to pay $115 for one checked bag and $40 for a carry on. Not sure if it is on PHX or Frontier, but waited 25 minutes for any luggage to show up to the carousel."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lower ticket prices but charge for a carry on and the flight was late"

Pros: "When I needed water it was provided."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and a half due to maintenance and paperwork."

Pros: "The flights went fine, and were mostly on-time, just a little delay leaving Chicago because the incoming flight had to wait for a gate to open up"
Cons: "Frontier's customer service line is horrible, with no clear option to reach a person to ask questions of without hunting through every option. Also, they charged me to pick a seat, ANY seat, so what the hell am I paying for when I pay for a flight?! I also had to put my backpack under my seat, even though it was stated numerous times on their website that it would be too big, and I had to pay $40 to make it a carry-on, when there was no room in the overhead bins. Their customer service line AND website stated I could be charged up to DOUBLE that ($80) if I had to pay for it at the gate. I looked it up, and I would have payed less on at least two other carriers because of the extra charges. This is information that should CLEARLY be stated when listing the costs of a flight, not "covered" under "additional costs may apply" or some such legalese"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing. The worse airline out there. Bunch of crooks. Kept 150 more people in the dark while we were delayed for almost 7 hours! Did not offer any information, did not solve any issues, did not even offer a damn bottle of water! GOD AWFUL customer service. Never again will Frontier get my business. Neither us or anyone else that I know."
Cons: "Everything about it was horrible. I will make sure our Awful experience will be heard every where in the media. It's a shame that Kayak supports such a low rate airline. Next time around I will check other sites before finalizing my ticket with Kayak."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too small"

Pros: "Flight on time, good price"
Cons: "Paying for seats and bag"

Pros: "The boarding was quick"
Cons: "No snacks/drinks given on a 3 hour flight. Flight attendants seemed rude and sarcastic."

Cons: "Everything!!"

Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was quick."
Cons: "They charged to pick seating, for carry-ons, and for beverages on the flight. The money I "saved" compared to other airlines, I ended up probably spending more due to the additional charges."

Pros: "on time service personel good"
Cons: "the air line is charging for everything including sodas ,cary on lagages with I think it is a little to much for the price"

Pros: "Non- Stop flight"
Cons: "6 hour 15 minute delay due to a mechanical problem. I learned that the problem was a broken seatbelt. I later learned that this plane was in the hanger in Chicago since the previous night. I received a $100 voucher for the inconvenience. I have to use the voucher in 90 days. Since I am not a frequent flyer this is no use to me,it should be extended to one year."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours. It was horrible."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "everything is an up charge, from carry-on bags to soda and snacks. if you want any and I mean any extra legroom expect to pay 17-25 dollars extra as well."

Cons: "For this price its all pretty good"

Pros: "I already gave my comments"
Cons: "I already gave my comments"

Cons: "Not to be late"

Cons: "Seriously There was zero social distancing. Ridiculous"

Pros: "Awful experience .."
Cons: "More comfortable sits. Horribly lounging."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly"

Cons: "Delayed because of frozen jetway, should’ve checked it out before plane came in"

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Arrived earlyThe seats were way too small and I am a small lady"

Pros: "New plane, Smooth on time departure and landing."
Cons: "Small seats, charging for carry on bags and to pick your seats, website didn't function well when I tried to get boarding passes, automated customer service was not helpful."

Cons: "This airline charged me nearly $100 in hidden fees. When I asked a representative why how I could get my money back, she was unable to help. She couldn't even tell me why I was being charged extra. Don't waste your time with this garbage airline. Complete joke. Looking forward to promoting Southwest to my friends and family."

Cons: "No room, no free soda"

Pros: "No problems and arrived dearly"
Cons: "Having to pay 4 water"

Pros: "Price of my ticket"
Cons: "The landing and seats not reclining"

Pros: "Comfortable with great low pricing"
Cons: "No free amenities"

Pros: "I like the name of their airline but that’s pretty much it. I would only consider them as a last resort."
Cons: "I have to be 45 minutes early to check in, I showed up 37 minutes early. They were VERY firm about the 8 minute difference which was disappointing but ultimately it was my fault I missed the flight and I accept responsibility for that. I didn’t make a fuss or try to negotiate, as soon as they told me that taking my flight was not an option I accepted it and moved on. My problem was with the level of service I received. I was very calm and polite with them and they were very uninterested in helping me find a solution for another flight. They seemed annoyed that I even asked them to help me explore other options . There were some annoyed sighs, they looked and shrugged at me without saying anything one time but the most annoying thing was that I was cutoff while talking to them multiple times. Even when I was just saying things like “hey sorry this is a complicated situation but I appreciate your help, the most important thing is making it to my destination on time not the price”. The options they were offering me were valued based on price, I wanted them to look at arrival time first and price second but they cut me off and started talking about other things. Other times when I’m saying something they would just turn away while I’m in the middle of my sentence and ask a co-worker a question as if I was never speaking to them in the first place. In the end they said I need to speak to the supervisor. I asked if they could get her for me and they said no because she was in another part of the airport at the moment, they have walkie talkies so I asked if they could at least contact her through there and let her know about my situation. They didn’t do that either, instead they just told me to wait and keep an eye out for her. They said she’s short with curly hair. That’s it. So I’m supposed to just sit and wait for someone that I’ve never seen before in my life. Apparently she walked by and I missed her because she wasn’t dressed the same as her other employees but the employees saw her and didn’t bother to get her attention and point her in my direction. After another few minutes of waiting I asked them where she was and they said “oh she walked by you didn’t see her?” The airline was not busy at all either so there is absolutely no excuse for this awful service. Once I arrived at my destination I told my friends and family about my experience and they had their own horror stories with spirit airlines too. The terrible experience made me very hesitant to fly with them again but the fact that my friends & family have had their own separate awful experiences made me 100% sure that I never want to use this airline again. I ended up taking a flight with United Airlines who had employees that were way friendlier and more helpful."

Cons: "Didn't have any food or entertainment, that's the reason for the low score. You need a N/A"

Pros: "Staff were actually nice on this flight. I boarded last so can’t complain."
Cons: "No entertainment. No power outlets. No reclining seats. No legroom. No frills. Base fare. Pretty crappy as usual."

Cons: "Crew could have come around a second time"

Cons: "Could not even get a glass of water without having to use credit card"

Pros: "Great for anyone simply looking to get from point A to point B - no fuss!"

Pros: "The snack selection on the flight and food package options were reasonably priced, and there were quite a few good options."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport and were through security over an hour prior to our flight's takeoff. We decided to grab breakfast at a restaurant approximately 2-3 gates down from our gate. We arrived back at our gate 17 minutes prior to the departure time and the door to the entryway was already closed. No spirit attendants remained at the gate to assist or inform us about who we should speak to regarding this matter. We sat at the gate and watched our flight take over 15 minutes to pull away from entryway with no one available to direct us. After the plane pulled away, a few Spirit staff members came back out the door to the gate, and when we inquired as to why our names were not called throughout the airport (as we heard many other names called while sitting at the airport) they informed us we would have to talk to the customer service desk if we had an issue. We went to the customer service desk and they put us on another flight, which did not depart until late that day. We went to the customer service desks of 3 other airlines attempting to find a sooner flight, and when we explained Spirit closed the gates 17 minutes early, each airline stated that the industry standard is 10 minutes. Not only does Spirit not follow the industry standard, but they also shut the gates 2minutes prior to Spirit's standard which is 15 minutes before the flight. Additionally, no effort was made to call our names prior to the flight, as is customary with all airlines. Two days later, we went to board our return flight, which a week prior to our trip we paid $585 to change to that day, and when we went to check in we were not scheduled to be on that return flight. We showed proof of switching our flight and luckily the attendant was able to get us on that flight, however, we were extremely rushed getting through security and due to Spirit's mistake almost missed this flight as well. If no seats would have been available we would not have been able to get home despite paying to switch the flight a week in advanced. Overall, we were very disappointed with our experience traveling with Spirit and would not recommend the airline to anyone. We are frequent travelers for both business and recreation and have never experienced such poor customer service."

Pros: "Punctuality."
Cons: "Hostesses were loud and had the most horrible screeching voices I've ever heard."

Pros: "Friendly & polite with sense of humor!!!"

Cons: "I didn't like anything. Will never book with Kayak or spirit. My flight from Chicago to Minneapolis was cancelled and I have still not got my refund. Pathetic!"

Cons: "We were delayed for about three hours but there were no announcements or screens displaying that information. There was no indication that we were even at the correct gate. People had to walk up one at a time and ask to confirm what was happening and that we were all at the correct gate. Two hours after our flight was supposed to take off, there was finally an announcement letting us know that there was a delay and our gate would be changed so we needed to move out of the way so another flight could use the gate, but not to too far because they didn't know when or where our flight would be leaving from. It was chaotic and disorganized for no reason. I understand that delays happen but the lack of communication was unacceptable."

Pros: "What I liked was getting from point A to point B ok."
Cons: "There was a 3 hour flight delay that could of been explained clearly and was told $50 compensation, but have yet to see credit."

Pros: "Airline Canceled the first leg and so never got to this flight"
Cons: "Airline cancelled the flight with zero understandable cause. And now out thousands to get home a day later than planned"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Sassy flight attendant making stupid jokes. Flight attendants over served 2 passengers. One was sitting next to us and was almost incoherent so I'm not sure why he was even let on."

Pros: "Co.fortable seets"

Pros: "Plane was new, cleaner, and roomier."
Cons: "Plane was old, seat (exit) worn out, cushion was short and hard, i.e. No cushion. Flight was Del aid, gate attendant gave no update as to why until 30 minutes after boarding time. And it was jetway attendant that made the announcement. Cabin flight crew looked tired. Cabin lines to bright during boarding and prior to landing. Plane needs to be retired, old and uncomfortable."

Cons: "delay of 2hrs and disruptive drunk idiot"

Pros: "I loved my seat. I was lucky enough to get put in the front where the seats are bigger. I probably wouldn't have liked to be in the back where it looked more crammed. Staff was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Nothing to read? Not even one of those stupid Airline magazines or a Sky Mall or something to read to help pass the time? That would have made the flight better."

Pros: "it was an inexpensive flight roundtrip to Chicago from Phoenix"
Cons: "No cushioning on the seats. they do not recline, and a 4"x8" "tray table" . Very uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "It was cheap. The airline gets you to where you need to go... The flight attendants were very nive. Well, I slept the entire flight, so I'm just going to assume they were nice. No complaints about them from me."
Cons: "I mean, obviously the flights are cheap for a reason. Buy your bags online or else you're paying $100 for each. (which absolutely sucks) They have no charging ports on the plane, so if your phone dies on your four hour flight only one hour in, then that's too bad."

Cons: "Couldn't make the flight, and couldn't even get any money back.wont use this sight anymore."

Cons: "Flight was canceled less than two hours before take off for scheduled maintenance"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours and they did not communicate this information very well. I was told to go to gate L7 and waited and waited without any information. Then they told us to go to gate L1 and then to go to gate L11 - it was very disorganized . The employees were not helpful and they seemed annoyed at all the questions. It was very crowded in the terminal and they kept telling us to move back to let other passengers off the plane but there was no where to go. All in all it was not a good experience to fly with Spirit."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "There's a a rule that states you can't check in after 45 minutes before your flight. That's annoying and unnecessary. I've ran late before with other airlines, but was able to check in and easily go get on the plane. Even if I didn't make it though because going through security took too long, what's the problem with the agents at the gate having to look for my next flight option? Because of this rule and me running behind for my 9:10 am flight, I missed it, and I had to wait 10 hours in the airport for the next one. Next time I fly, I will be avoiding Spirit airlines if it comes up as an option."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "First, the gate swited twice. Flight was delayed 30 minutes. Plus, I paid to sit in the 4th row, but the 3rd row was empty. So, the flight attendant let people who didn't pay extra for those seats, move all the up from the back of plane. Seriously? Why did I have to pay then? Should I then be entitled to a refund since other people sat there for free?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay!, prices on bag charge"

Cons: "Well the flight got cancelled. So the entire process was absolutely awful."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane took well over 40minutes to depart. I asked a flight attendant if she could solve an issue that I had with the seat I was in, she said sure and never did a thing. I sat next to a rude and inappropriate couple that was making out and kept bothering. I felt uncomfortable thought the entire flight. I will never fly with spirit again. I've had other issues as well with spirit the last time I flew but decided to give them a second chance. Never again."

Pros: "Prompt departure or arrival"
Cons: "Paying for extra luggage weight over 40 pounds. All other airlines set it at 50 pounds so when told I had to pay a ridiculous $25 because bag was at 47 pounds (underweight for other airlines). It spoiled my experience with Spirit. You advertise cheap prices but are sneaky with extra costs. Ridiculous. I do not ever plan to fly Spirit ever again. Disgusted. Let people know in large print that the luggage weight is 40-yet that's ridiculous not to go with 59. Women at checkin were unfriendly & unprofessional. Such a horrid experience."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say about the flight"

Cons: "I cancelled the reservation after 10min, but I have been charged for a complete airfare. The company refuses to refund me for the full fare. The company offered me an alternative of flying with them and get a refund of 70 something $ within 60 days. That can not be done! BTW, in all other airline companies you can get a full refund if the deal was cancelled within 24H from when the reservation was done. I am very frustrated."

Cons: "No more to be said."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The bottom seat cushion was firm, suitable for long flights without butt pains."
Cons: "I usually like to fly an airline that doesn't make every attempt to be as inexpensive as possible; however this flight from Chicago to Phoenix for $177 was the earliest available so I made my decision based on that. What I didn't like is what you can probably guess; I was dinged $55 for a carry on bag, check in was through kiosk only with agents available is something went wrong (the card reader on mine was bad), there was no complimentary anything on the flight - that includes water, and there were advertisements in the plane. Ugh,"

Pros: "The flight attendants were quite amiable and realize it's a cheap airline, which made it slightly more enjoyable"
Cons: "Extremely tiny seats that don't recline (and I'm a small person). The plane was delayed because they couldn't find a gate to dock in, even though the plane was just sitting there. All food and drinks are for purchase only."
